"Rules of the Road" Lima Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Robin922

Lima Warnings and Dangers: 77 reviews and 53 photos

There are a lot of warnings on this subject, and a good reason for it.
Size matters! A big truck out ranks a car, and a car out ranks a pedestrian.

I wouldn?t suggest driving here for the average person! If you are faint hearted, you may wish to close you eyes while riding in the taxi.

Red lights appear to be an option, people turn left from the right lane, and right from the left lane. If there is a traffic jam, they may just go down the middle of the cars, making a two lane into a three lane. I?ve was even in a car that drove on the wrong side of the street for several blocks.

The excessive blowing of horns and yelling at each other isn?t road rage, but local culture.

The good news, the odds are you will get to your destination in one piece. While they do have the occasional fender benders, they don?t ever appear to have enough speed to have serious accidents.
